insurance plans pay under part d of medicare for prescription drugs. they are taking advantage of their purchasing power. and we're relying on private insurers committee are' competition in part d of medicare, it isn't as effective as the v.a. which does take advantage of its market power. let me just talk for a moment on a private insurance. we rely on private insurance here. it's for-profit insurance. i think it leads to much higher health care costs. private insurers, obviously by definition, they have to make a profit. in addition to that they engage in marketing, they also engage in what we call medical understood writing, they have to hire a lot of actuaries to make sure that they're not taking on people who are too expensive. these are all very costly things. so that raises the price of private insurance. in addition, as i said, they don't have as much bargaining power so they also can't keep their prices low by taking advantage of the consolidated power that i'm talking about. so you might ask, why do we allow private insurance to have quasi-monopoly and the answer is t

, and the last three, social security, medicare and medicaid, those three make up about 59 percent of all federal spending each year. they wouldn't be touched by this freeze. it's just the 17 percent of the budget that's the government agencies and programs and departments. trace: molly henneberg, live for us on the north lawn of the white house, thank you. as always, we want to hear from you, log on to foxnews.com and on the home page you'll see our you decide questions of the day. one of the them asks if you think a partial spending freeze is a good idea. click on the question and see the answer choices and click one of them to register your vote. you can also see how other people are answering by clicking the view results tab. it's all right there on foxnews.com. >> also an foxnews.com right now, if you wanted to hear the rest of that press briefing with robert gibbs, that's also an foxnews.com. >>> meanwhile two strong aftershocks rocking port-au-prince haiti, today, our fox team on the ground tells us the tremors felt moderately strong, strong enough to give them a scare and those aftershock

wanted system in which seniors don't have these huge gaps in their medicare prescription drug coverage. [applause] and where medicare itself is on a sounder financial footing. those are the things that we are fighting for. and i am not going to stop on them because it is the right thing to do and by the way, if you are serious about reducing our deficit and debt coming cannot accomplish it without reforming our health care system because that is what is gobbling up more federal dollars than anything else. i don't understand folks that say they don't want to see government spending under control and then are fighting controls at the congressional budget office says would cut a trillion dollars off our deficit over the next two decades. [applause] those aren't my numbers. now, we are never going to stop fighting to cut waste and abuse in washington. we do have to reign in death of his-- deficits that been accumulating. families across the country are tightening their belts and making tough decisions. it is time for the federal government to do the same and that is why i propose specific

down premiums, bring down the deficit, cover the uninsured, strengthen medicare for seniors and stop insurance company abuses, let me know. let me know. i'm eager to see it. here's what i ask congress, though. don't walk away from reform. not now. not when we are so close. let us find a way to come together and finish the job for the american people. let's get it done. let's get it done. now, even if health care reform would reduce our deficit, it's not enough to dig us out of a massive fiscal hole in which we find ourselves. it's a challenge that makes all others that much harder to solve and one that's been subject to a lot of political posturing. so let me start the discussion of government spending by setting the record straight. at the beginning of the last decade the year 2000 america had a budget surplus of over $200 billion. by the time i took office, we had a one-year deficit of over $1 trillion and projected deficits of $8 trillion over the next decade. most of this was the result of not paying for two wars, two tax cuts, and a
government spending for three years. [applause] spending related to our national security, medicare, medicaid and social secuty will not be affected. but all other discretionary government programs will. like any cash-strapped family we'll work within a budget to invest with what we need and sacrifice what we don't. if i have to enforce this by line veto, i will. [applause] we will continue to go through the budget line by line, page by page to eliminate programs that we can't afford and don't work. we have already identified 25 billion in savings for next year. to help working families, we'll extend our middle class tax cuts but in a time of record deficits, we'll not continue tax cuts for oil companies and investment fund managers and those making over $250,000 a year. we can't afford it. [applause] now, even after paying for what we spend on my watch, we'll still face the massive deficit when i took office. more importantly the cost of medicare and medicaid and social security will continue to sky rocket. that's why i am called for a bipartisan fiscal commission modeled on a proposal by re
down premiums, bring down the deficit, cover the uninsured, strengthen medicare for seniors, and stop insurance company abuses, let me know. let me know. [applause] let me know. [applause] i'm eager to see it. here is what i ask congress though. don't walk away from reform, not now, not when we are so close. let us find a way to come together and finish the job for the american people.

is the good news -- compared to medicare, social security is in reasonably good shape, with a relatively small adjustments, you can have a solvent for a long time to the social security is going to be there. i know people are concerned about it. social security we can fix. in terms of the cola, which stands for cost-of-living allowance -- it is put in place to make sure that social security is keeping up with inflation. here is the problem -- this past year, because of the severity of the recession, we did on that inflation, we had deflation. -- we did not have inflation, we had deflationary prices actually fell last year. as a consequence, seniors were not eligible for a cost-of- living adjustment because prices did not go up in the aggregate. that does not mean that individual folks were not being pinched by higher heating prices or what have you, but on average, prices went down. here is what we did -- working with these key members of congress here, we did vote to provide aid to order to the dollar -- provide the $250 one- time payment to seniors, which when he factored in, amounted to 1.8
, one is we can cut out the medicare wage, democrats have been for that, subsidies for people that aren't insured, and we can begin to get universal insurance, tax breaks for smaller businesses to incentivize them to cover their employees. i think that we also ought to possibly put on the table tort reform for punitive damages in particular, i think that will bring republicans along. trace: maybe those are all good points, juliane, you've done your research and home work and those are good points. the whole problem is getting that together and getting congress to agree on that takes time. we've spent a year. don't we need to focus on one thing, which is jobs, before we even mention health care again? >> yeah, i mean, i go back to your earlier point, it's well into the future before he mentioned the word jobs, and let's look at what the american people want. scott rasmussen came out with new numbers that said that 61 percent of the american people want the president to move off of health care and on to fixing this economy and really get people hired and getting the unemployment rate down
that working people have it too good, too much health care, too much social security and medicare, too much power on the job are inviting a repeat of 1994. now f. this doesn't signal a warning and you consider how many boots are on the ground labor dead, how much social networking they did and how much money they raised for democratic candidates f. this isn't a shot over the bow officially at the international press club, this is saying, hey, fellas, we're not going to be there in 2010. we're walking right down the road for a repeat of '94. what's your response to this this? >> i think you're right. there's a lot riding on how we strike a balance. and if you create a health care plan where middle class families feel like they are going backwards rather than forwards, that's a recipe for trouble. repealed within a year for the same reason and clinton health care plan, i think it really failed for that same reason. >> and finally congressman, i'm told that they are working on a compromise, that they would tax the top 2% income tax and then not go after taxing the health care benefits as much
to force retirement ask force a vote that has been so reluctant to take on medicare and medicaid that is going to drive us right into the roof here in the next few years, that effort to form a commission was rejected today by the senate. and that's a setback, i think, for budget hogs and for what the president wants to make part of his agenda in the coming year. >> so, eric, where is the disconnect between the senate and the public? in your view, why has the senate turned against him in this big challenge to fix the economy? he's obviously trying to address what he's been hearing, but it's like it's just around the edges, so whats the bigger issue here? >> i think the bigger issue here is the president says he's going to fix the spending after it's been raised 20%, but the health care stimulus a majority of americans think was wasted. just today ron nabors from the budget office was quoted around capitol hill that liberals should take heart that this doesn't really affect agencies, and by the way, the president is going to continue to pursue health care and a jobs bill that he sa
